6. STATUTORY REGULATION

 

6.1 Regulation. Transporter's rates, charges, classifications and

services as set forth in this tariff are subject to regulation by the

Commission under the Natural Gas Act, the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978

and any successor or supplemental act. Transporter shall have the right

to file from time to time with the Commission under Section 4 of the

Natural Gas Act such new rate schedules and changes in its existing

effective tariff as Transporter may find necessary from time to time to:

(a) assure Transporter just and reasonable rates and charges, as well

as a rate of return sufficient, inter alia, to service the debt, attract

capital, permit facilities expansion and (b) efficiently and reliably

manage its Transportation System to provide adequate natural gas service

to all of Transporter's customers. Without in any way limiting the

generality of the foregoing, Transporter shall have the right to file

new rate schedules and or new tariff sheets fairly and appropriately

reflecting changes in its costs or changes in the conditions of service

attributable to such transportation or any other service provided.

Shipper shall have the right to protest any such new rate schedules and

changes before the Commission. Notwithstanding any other provision

hereof, these provisions are subject to all valid legislation and all

valid present or future orders, rules and regulations of duly

constituted authorities now or hereafter having jurisdiction.

 

6.2 Filing Fees. Shipper shall reimburse Transporter for any and all

filing fees incurred by Transporter in seeking necessary governmental

authorizations for service or facilities requested by the Shipper under

any Rate Schedule included in this tariff.

 

6.3 Imported Natural Gas. For imported Natural Gas tendered by

Shipper for Transportation by Transporter under Rate Schedules TF-1, TF-

2 or TI-1, Shipper agrees that it or the entity selling the imported

Natural Gas to Shipper is the "importer of record" and Shipper will

comply with all requirements for reporting and submitting payment of

duties, fees, and taxes to the United States or agencies thereof to be

made on imported Natural Gas and for making the declaration of entry

pursuant to 19 CFR Section 141.19. Shipper agrees to indemnify and hold

Transporter harmless from any and all claims of damage or violation of

any applicable laws, ordinances and statutes which pertain to the

importation of the gas transported hereunder and which require reporting

and/or filing of fees in connection with said import.
